    Stop yammering about the deficit.

    On the national scene, you can spend yourself to prosperity and save yourself into penury.  

    It's a whole different kind of animal and getting mixed up with Randians and gold standard idiots is the wrong way to go.

      "yammering" seems like it might be meant to express contempt. Maybe that's not what you had in mind?

        the others.
        Getting real tired of listening (40+ years) to people claiming to have common sense who do not.

        Even if the debt and deficit were stacks of gold, we should remember the old rule:

        If you owe the bank $1000, they own you.  If you owe the bank $1,000,000 you own them.  Update the numbers for inflation and the fact that these are not private but national numbers and the "Debt" problem just goes away.

        The real enemy is whoever changes the subject away from the depredations of the 1%.
